In which countries of the world a prostitution is legal?
Prostitution is LEGAL (with some restrictions that aren't that bad) in Canada, most all of Europe including England, France, Wales, Denmark, etc., most of South America including most of Mexico (often in special zones), Brazil, Israel (Tel Aviv known as the brothel capital of the world), Australia, and many other countries.
You will be probably surprised by following info: It is either legal or very tolerated in most all of Asia and even Iran has "temporary wives" which can be for only a few hours..can u imagine dude?
I'm not quite sure about the countries itself, but what i know that proponents of legalizing prostitution believe it would reduce crime, improve public health, increase tax revenue, help people out of poverty, get prostitutes off the streets, and allow consenting adults to make their own choices.
on the other hand opponents believe that legalizing prostitution would lead to increases in sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS, global human trafficking, and violent crime including rape and homicide. They contend that prostitution is inherently immoral, commercially exploitative, empowers the criminal underworld, and promotes the repression of women by men. Now u decide to be proponent or the opponent
I am against it, opponents are totally right!
Legal prostitution is the same as legal child trafficing, dont u think so? in both ways u r selling a person...even if in first case she agrees for that with her own mental thinking... Anyway i'm ok with what various resorts in exotic countries offer for sexual pleasure, but lets dont consider them as prostitutes, but show-girls paid for the time-spending, sex is just matter of not money, but liking each other
p.s. no offence guys, just my my arrogant opinion
Totally agree Casanova, the punisment for that kind of offence should be the same...
If there is not legal prostitution there will be lots of crime and raping..dont u think about that my friends? Man struggling to have a sex and who is ugly enough to distract any woman to be engaged in sex with a woman, has only one choise to use his money to fuck some chick who also agrees on that.. otherwise there is a big chance of desperate man to rape and involve in a sex-crime...think about it guys
I think you will find all your answers here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitution_by_country
I can tell you some thinks about UK. In UK the legislation is complicated. A punter is committing a crime if the prostitute is forced by a third person even if the punter is not aware of that but this have never happened. I have a friend that owns a London escort agency and I know that the agencies are tolerated if they don't engage in crimes like selling drugs. Hope I have helped
Legal opponents..geez..first there will always be sex for sale, in all its forms by billboard our by person, it will happen. As a so called advanced society we then need to ask how best to protect out citizens, and driving prostitution underground is not it. Legal pro'n same as legal child trafficking ..are you serious. A rational adult cannot and should not be compared to immature children with no world experience. Obviously being forced into pro'n is a no go. But to assume it is always so is blatantly false. Just listen to interviews with pros and you will soon know..
In the Netherlands brothels are legal!
